So basically it's a little sensor that tells on you, hopefully shaming you into fitness before you're forced to explain to your doctor that, honestly, that wasn't a midnight snack, that was just you giving a blow job. But what's gonna happen when the chip inevitably suffers an electric discharge and takes over the person's brain, like in Spider-Man 2? What then, Taiwan?
We meant Doctor Octopus, but hell, this works, too.
Dubai Is Bribing People to Lose Weight ... With Gold
It's starting to look like Dubai might have a little too much money on its hands -- not only are its buildings getting insanely bigger, but its people are, too. The United Arab Emirates is now the fifth fattest country in the world. However, Dubai is quickly learning that there are no problems they can't solve by just throwing money at them, so that's exactly the approach they're taking with obesity. From mid-July until mid-August, the city will be paying out 1 gram of gold for every kilo their citizens shed, as long as they lose at least 2 kilos (4.4 pounds).
